It's been sometime since we have cooked with eggs, right? I'm always on the look out for a good egg recipe and this definitely is my current favourite. What I liked most about this recipe is that, you can have it for breakfast with some toast or for lunch with some rice or even for dinner with some chapathi :) Since it uses pretty much basic ingredients, it's ideal to make if you have any unexpected guests and it can be prepared in a jiffy!
Do I need to say more…
Here is the recipe…
Heat oil in a pan and add the chopped onion and green chilli. When onions become soft (no need to brown), add turmeric powder, salt and curry leaves. Mix well…
Add beaten eggs and scramble them…
When the eggs are half cooked add coconut and jeera. Mix well. Cook for 3-4 mins on low flame. Add 1/2 tsp crushed pepper and mix well…

Hi Maria … thats a simple delicious recipe .. I make it often .. but I add tomatoes to this .. it gives a nice tangy flavour .. I have never added jeera to eggs .. will try it the next time … also I made the “Erachi Pathiri” … minus the egg part …. awesome .. my son just loved it … thanks …
yeah, its a simple one. One other reader was also saying about adding tomato, I’ll try it next time n see :)
Nice to know that you liked the erachi pathiri, thank you!
That’s a simple one,Maria. It’s my fav dish. My mom uses tomatoes n ginger too. This is a much simple one n less time consuming.
Yep, it’s a simple dish :) Adding tomatoes sounds nice, it will add some colour also to the dish :)
